Camping will look a little bit different this year for all of us, but the Parks Canada Learn-to Camp team is still ready to help you successfully plan your first camping adventure. We’d love you to come and learn about camping with us and we hope to camp together again next year!

This year, we are offering our Learn-to Camp workshops virtually. More details below about attending our free weekly summer workshops.
